The field to fill the U.S. House seat vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr. expanded Sunday as former Illinois state Rep. Robin Kelly announced she is running for the 2nd Congressional District office.
Kelly, who was appointed chief administrative officer for Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle in 2011, was chief of staff to former state Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias and ran unsuccessfully to replace him when he ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate. She is a former state representative from Matteson, which is in the 2nd District.
